Soldier Songs and Voices currently offers chapters all across America.

We meet in venues weekly or monthly for free songwriting lessons and music writing workshops.

All sessions are led by professional musicians. Whether you are new to music or an experienced songwriter, we welcome veterans and dependents from all generations and backgrounds.

 

Don't have an instrument?

No problem. We are here to help you get started.

 

Whether you are looking to learn a new instrument, hone your songwriting skills, or simply attend a music session and see what our community is about...We are here for you.

Interested in starting a local chapter of Soldier Songs & Voices?
